Paul Strand Retrospective

Share:

The Victoria & Albert Museum in London will present the first retrospective of the American artist Paul Strand in the UK for over 30 years. On view from 19 March until 3 July, 2016.

Revered as one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, Paul Strand (1890–1976) defined the way fine art and documentary photography is understood and practiced today.

Part of a tour organised by Philadelphia Museum of Art, in collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE and made possible by the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) exhibition will reveal Strand’s trailblazing experiments with abstract photography, screen what is widely thought of as the first avant-garde film and show the full extent of his photographs made on his global travels beginning in New York in 1910 and ending in France in 1976.

“Paul Strand: Photography and Film for the 20th Century” will encompass over 200 objects from exquisite vintage photographic prints to films, books, notebooks, sketches and Strand’s own cameras to trace his career over sixty years. Arranged both chronologically and thematically, the exhibition will broaden understanding to reveal Strand as an international photographer and filmmaker with work spanning myriad geographic regions and social and political issues.
